In Classical Feng Shui we use the 5 elements of water, wood, fire, earth and metal to either enhance the good energy or to exhaust the negative energy of a space.
I like to talk a bit about the metal energy that is needed to minimize the inauspicious energy of the #2 and #5 Earth Stars which are in the West and North sector of our homes this year. One remedy used for the #2 and #5 stars is the 6 rod all metal wind chime. But sometimes it’s difficult to find one and it can be pricey as well. There are other alternatives. Such as this ‘all brass wall decoration’ (pictured here) which I thought was perfect and really heavy that will also do the job. Got a good price for it too. Some of our common office and household furniture or objects can also be used for this purpose. I like to use and position my metal filing cabinet when I need to press down the inauspicious energy of the #2 or #5 in my office.
